Sorry for your loss. Difficult for me to understand anyone thinking this is a hoax.

We have already decided to stay in our sticks and bricks house this coming winter which is way off the beaten path in the NC mountains.
I just need to get some one to do the weeding at our RV lot in Key Largo.

Tequila sorry to hear of your friend's passing. It saddens us that so so many folks just don't get how serious this is until they either contract it themselves and are desperately ill with it, or lose a loved one close to them.

Even here in Alberta we have been seeing our numbers rising the past couple of weeks due to the complacency now in regards to this.

Yes, I can appreciate how sick to the back teeth of this virus so many folks are but if we'd just ALL do our part on social distancing, sanitizing, masking when appropriate we'd all benefit in the big picture.

Death is one thing, but what grieves us the most is the ongoing and who knows for how long, side effects that many that have contracted it and somewhat recovered are going to endure. None of us know how to truly win at this COVID-19 game, but we can ALL heed some common sense medical advice at least and try to comply.

Warm thoughts of comfort to his family.

I am afraid they will, once again, begin closing campgrounds. Truly I am closer to my neighbors at home than in my self contained RV with the family. I believe a contributing factor is the large number of unmasked protesters in cities across the U.S. who protest nightly atleast here in Portland Oregon. Much more than folks simply trying to camp

Thankfully do not know anyone with Covid, but just lost a 68 year old great neighbor to working outside his home in the heat. Be careful when it is very hot!

Covid is real, no doubt. However, the greatest risk by far is to folks with compromised immune systems or other co-morbidities. In other words, us old fogies are impacted the most.

My brother and his wife caught it. They're in their upper 70s. They didn't go to the hospital, they stayed home and toughed it out. My brother lost 12 lbs in 10 days! But they are on the mend.

Too many unknowns for us for the coming snowbird season including the Canada/US border, we've already decided to cancel our annual trek to South Carolina.

I’m 72 and my wife will be 69 this year; until they have this virus beaten with a vaccine, we’re staying in the great white north! First time in 9 years. [emoticon]
